combined to one with a remote control device that didn't work in this case. >> reporter: 28-year-old syed farook and his 27-year-old wife tashfeen malik reportedly dropped their six-month-old off with their mother and told her they were going to a doctor's appointment. instead, the couple returned to a holiday banquet and opened fire on his co-workers, firing between 65 and 75 rounds. they had amassed an arsenal of weapons, including 5,000 round of ammunition and pipe bomb. >> there were 12 pipe bomb devices found in the house or in the garage to the house. >> reporter: the fbi says syed farook is a u.s. citizen. his wife had a pakistani passport and was in the u.s. on a visa. at a news conference last night, his brother-in-law said he doesn't know what would have prompted this violence. >> i am in shock that something like this could happen.
6:01 pm
says the shooting was possibly related to terrorism, but it might also be workplace related, or both. two vigils are planned tonight in memory of those victims. ernie: we're waiting to see what will happen next. thank you for that, sharon. joining me to talk more about this is my special guest. bill dailey is back, specialized in counter intelligence. you've been following this carefully. this was a carefully planned attack. when they raided the house, they found an arsenal. to do more damage. pipe bombs, ammunition and so forth. and yet no clues. no intelligence. what happened? >> well, ernie, certainly very troubling the fact they were able to run below the radar and be able to assemble the weapons, ammunition and now we're hearing more about pipe bombs at the residence as well as those found in the vehicle that was stopped by police. it's very troubling the fact that if anyone knew or saw
6:02 pm
the fact is we don't know to what level their profile was out there in social media or internet sites. there's some information that's coming through this evening suggesting that there may have been some. we don't know yet. without that, we're just relying on people to be able to see something and say something. ernie: which can make a big difference. >> makes a big difference. it gets down to that basic element. a lot of people say, well, i don't want to report on my neighbors or tell people about something. that can put people at risk. ernie: bill, you said said something about copycat behavior. elaborate on that. >> if you look at their behavior, the way they were dressed, the way they organized themselves, the fact they rented a car a day or more beforehand, there was preplanning and there's a look, this look of what we've seen elsewhere around the world, whether we recently saw it in paris or we've seen it in other theatres where people committed acts. whether this is convergence of
6:03 pm
violence incident that also has appearances of something broader, we don't know. the incident did take place at the workplace. however, they did conduct themselves in a way that would look almost, you know, like paramilitary. ernie: you talked about the workplace and we've heard about active shooter. the term, there's been an uptick. should there be more training of employees and how the fbi is handling that. >> sure. i think we've seen some more of this activity in the corporate sector where companies are both looking at what to do with an active shooter as a company, how to react to it, to mitigate the exposure, realizing that police, even at the closest time, will be several minutes away. ernie: you can only do so much. >> the question is do people evacuate, shelter in place? at some point, it becomes a personal decision. as much as you may get guidance from people in a building, you have to make that decision. if you see something coming at you, whether you escape or
6:04 pm
thank you for joining us. >> in other news, we have this story. the numbers show that more americans are buying guns. according to the fbi, on black friday more people had their backgrounds checked than any other day on record. statistics say there were 185,000 requests, a 5% increase from last year. >> i'm in business to do business, but there's a difference between doing business and making money and blood money. and i think it's very sad that people are feeling this way within their own home. ernie: according to gun store owners, one in eight guns sold are being bought by new customers. >> a number of high ranking present and former fifa officials were arrested in switzerland today on corruption charges. loretta lynch unsealed the indictment today. 27 people have been charged in the bribery scheme at the soccer organization since may. >> and a landmark announcement from the pentagon today.
6:05 pm
ordered the armed forces to open all combat jobs to women. that decision will allow women to fill about 220,000 jobs held by men, including infantry, armor and special ops units. >> our force of the future must continue to benefit from the best people america has to offer. in the 21st century, that requires drawing strength from the broadest possible pool of talent. this includes women because they make up over 50 percent of the american population. ernie: secretary carter has given the military 30 days to submit plans to make the change. >> and that's what's happening right now. nick is here with our weather. we got a nice stretch of weather, i hear, on the way, right? nick: you hear correctly. that's good. you're right. it is nice for us. the issue has been ongoing for a long time about getting more rain.
6:06 pm
every little bit will help. the big story was the wind, strong and gusty out of the northwest. ernie: less wind tomorrow but a nice weekend. nick: a nice weekend coming up. and not that cold. ernie: aren't we lucky. nick: we've been very lucky. it will come. it is wintertime eventually. we won't escape it completely. we did well as far as highs are concerned. we'll stay about 47 even the next few days. tomorrow about 49 or 50. going back into the 50s over the weekend. 36 the average low. we'll be close to that tomorrow. upper 30s in the city. 9 was the low in '76. a day of sunshine coming up tomorrow. 48 now. humidity is dry. wind out of the west. a few scattered clouds. the pressure is 30.05 and on the rise. temperatures earlier pretty much in the middle 50s across the area. some 40s in the northern and western suburbs for today. we'll see if my clicker will
6:07 pm
58 at montauk. 58 at montauk. 52 as you get towards bridgeport. 50 at poughkeepsie. but not out of the upper 40s to the north and west. 52 in belmar. the wind made it feel chillier. we're down to 41 at sussex. 45 at the dutchess county airport. upper 40s to 50 across the city to long island. here's the wind flow. west to northwesterly, 10, 20 miles an hour. that will continue tonight. over the hillier terrain, there have been a couple of sprinkles and showers. you see a few of them coming up to the throughway towards newburgh. that's about it. you can see at the movie loop shows they evaporate and dry out as they get down from the mountains towards the coast. don't expect that to be a problem. just a few clouds will be around. our weather will be nice as the storm system continues to move along and takes the gusty wind with it.
6:08 pm
look at that big area of real estate of dry weather. that is ours starting tomorrow. it will go through the weekend. about 40 through 9:00 a.m. in the city. and mid 40s lunchtime. we'll stop at 50 tomorrow afternoon which is above average for this time of year. here's futurecast. that will show the high pressure building in as we look at the sunshine in the forecast. the sun will be back on saturday. as high pressure sprawls in, it will be back on sunday. sunday as you'll see, temperatures will be back up into the middle 50s. tonight, we'll get that clearing trend going with a few clouds left over. a gusty northwest breeze. 39 in the city. 30 to 35 in the northern and western cooler spots. tomorrow, sunny, upper 40s to 50. we'll call that seasonal for this time of year. saturday, 52. sunday better at 55. 53 monday. sun gives in to clouds. tuesday, wednesday, that timeframe needs to be watched for the potential for a coastal storm. we'll talk about rain tuesday, tuesday night. windy, upper 40s. back to 50 on thursday.
6:09 pm
nick: we are. going to be a great weekend. ernie: coming up next, college campuses have been a hotbed of expression through protests, but do protests reveal a systemic issue around the country? do college campuses have a race issue? an expert will talk about it next. we're back tomorrow with a look at the family planning later in life issue. with so many people putting careers first, we look at the good and the bad of starting a family in your late 30s and your 40s. we have that and more coming up tomorrow at 6:00. and we'll be right back right after the break.

6:12 pm
costumes. both examples show the climate on u.s. campuses is tense. joining me to talk about it is my special guest, civil rights diversity reporter, international business times. aaron, thanks for being here. interesting subject. we were talking about this before. u.s. colleges seem to be more diverse, including the faculty. there have been some changes. yet we have these racially charged incidents taking place. how do you explain that? >> i think students certainly are emboldened by what we've seen over the last year, more focused on issues of inclusion and diversity and justice. the students are really taking their cue from that movement. ernie: you were talking about how college diversity directors can be making a difference in the situations. this is a growing trend, isn't it? >> it is. chief diversity officers are hired in missouri and at yale and at a few other colleges around the country.
6:13 pm
position that takes a look at diversity from an institutional level. so anything from scholarships to more course offerings that would teach cultural literacy. ernie: i were mentioning how important it is, and that's part of the job of the director, communication, to make sure that the students understand what's going on and faculty understands, administration knows what's happening. >> right. students want to know if they've got a complaint on campus, especially a racist complaint, they want to know what the steps are to report that and will there be follow-up. once there's follow-up, what's the result? a lot of students say when they complain or report these things, there's no result. ernie: we hear a lot of students coming into campus, you know, are unfamiliar with a lot of racial and ethnic groups and so forth. you have alcohol. you have social media and so forth. is that all part of why we're
6:14 pm
>> i think that's fair to say. but what the students really want to eliminate one element of that is more attention and requirement that students go through some sort of literacy on issues of race, gender and ethnicity so if there are questions of whether something is going to be offensive, they have answers to it. ernie: overall, i mean, you have a sense -- there's a positive feeling to this story, not necessarily all that negative. is that true? >> right. well, it would be hard to find any college in the country that says they don't care about diversity. a lot of them do. but it's just about whether they ernie: right. are you optimistic? you report on this all the time. what's the sense that you get? >> i think schools that do not want to see the type of unrest that you would see at -- in missouri and yale, they will take a closer look at what they can do and maybe the chief

6:19 pm
he said i'll be unhappy if our season ends january 3rd, the final regular game of the season. i tell you what, tom coughlin knows that. the general manager knows that. the co-owner knows that. all the players know that. it's not like -- ernie: you've seen this thing before, right? russ: listen, with the giants and with tom coughlin, we've been dealing with that for a good five, six years. it comes with the territory. bottom line is they have a big game against -- ernie: there's a lot of pressure. no question about it. russ: there's pressure but there's always pressure. this particular week, they're facing their rivals, the jets. ernie: big game. russ: it's not just a big game. the rivalry takes a back seat because of what is at stake. but actually the giants, if you will, at 5 and 6, are in a little better shape than the jets are at 6 and 5. ernie: explain that. russ: because the giants,
6:20 pm
the redskins to win the nfc east. the jets, there are three other teams, four teams in the afc at 6 and 5 and two at 5 and 6. that means there are six teams in the american football conference vying for just two wildcard berths. it's a tougher fight. under that circumstance, the giants are in better shape. if they want to stay in better shape, they better beat the jets sunday. the jets have their own ideas. ernie: quickly, tiger woods talking a little about maybe finishing it off? russ: you know, i wouldn't say he's ready to finish it off, but he's reconciled with the fact that the end is getting closer. he's had four back surgeries. he's -- four knee surgeries and three back surgeries. he doesn't want anymore. and listen, a couple of years ago, he looked really good. looked like he was the tiger of
